Tcl telecom expertise v 2 00 vs 220812

  1. 1. TCL Telecom ExpertiseThe telecoms industry has grown from the days of wired communication to the wirelessmobile networks that we all use today. The industry is currently dealing with two major globalshocks that have threatened it lately. The first was the global economic downturn thatcontinues to adversely affect the performance of operators in markets around the world.Growth naturally slowed, as a result, operators focused on cutting costs and increasingoperational efficiency to protect profitability.The second shock has been mass digitization. Customers — both consumers andbusinesses — are becoming more demanding, and forcing operators to boost networkcapacity and connectivity. As other industries become increasingly digitized they aredemanding a variety of new services like mobile payment platforms and cloud computing.Thus the market for mobile applications continues to grow rapidly, creating yet anotherdisruptive force that operators must learn to benefit from.The integrated technology value chains, on which operators have long depended, includingcritical applications and service platforms, are growing increasingly modular and open. As aresult, the telecom ecosystem is becoming much more competitive, as new entrants fromadjacent industries look to exploit both new customer expectations and technologicalopenness.According to an article titled “2012 Telecommunications Industry Perspective” by Booz & Co,this transformation will lead to a fundamental shift among operators from the integratedbusiness models that dominated the industry for most of the past century to four distinct,(though not mutually exclusive) open business models designed to take full advantage ofthe opportunities now opening up: the reliable, cost-efficient network guarantor; the flexible,integrated business enabler; the innovative, customer-facing experience creator; and thewide-ranging, synergistic global multimarketer.According to this article, in the coming year, operators must begin making the strategicchoices necessary to determine their future direction, deciding which of the four models — orcombination of models — works for them. This decision should depend both on whether theycan effectively leverage the capabilities they already possess and on careful consideration oftheir ability to build new ones.It is clear that the industry is changing rapidly and in order to maintain leadership positionsthe operators will have to decide and grab their positions and build their capabilities using astrategic approach. Heavy investments in building these capabilities, acquiring the underlyinginfrastructure and developing appropriate software applications are inevitable, and thereforeso are large multi-vendor development and integration efforts.Given the shape of things to come, a trusted independent software testing partner can proveinvaluable in ensuring that the end result is quality software and systems that support theintended business strategy.For further details on the models, see “The Future of Telecom Operators: Capabilities forRapid Change,” by Bahjat El-Darwiche, Roman Friedrich, Pierre Péladeau, and KarimSabbagh (Booz & Company, 2010).
